Last week a Texas TV station broke the news that new independent scientific analysis refutes the claim by the oil and gas industry that “there’s never been a confirmed case of fracking polluting drinking water.”
WFAA, the ABC affiliate in Dallas, reported that two independent scientists using data from Texas regulators confirmed fracking in Parker County, TX by Range Resources polluted resident Steve Lipsky’s drinking water with dangerous levels of methane from the Barnett Shale.
“Texas regulators should be ashamed of themselves,” said Sharon Wilson, Earthworks Texas organizer. “Whether it’s the Railroad Commission and drinking water, or TCEQ and air pollution, these agencies have shown that Texas communities cannot rely on the state for protection against fracking and drilling companies that threaten their health.”
According to Earthworks, the Parker County case is not the first example of fracking polluting drinking water:
The Canadian province of Alberta’s government has verified fracking pollution of drinking water
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) stands by preliminary results indicating fracking polluted an aquifer near Pavillion, WY, before it handed its investigation over to the state of Wyoming and the company liable for the pollution.
The U.S. EPA regional staff linked fracking to drinking water contamination in Dimock, PA, but were forced to prematurely stop the investigation.
“It’s time for the U.S. EPA to come clean about how fracking pollutes drinking water,” said Jennifer Krill, Earthworks executive director. “The EPA knew about this water pollution, as it did in Wyoming and Pennsylvania. But at the moment of truth, EPA withdrew in all cases rather than definitively declare that fracking pollutes drinking water.”
Wilson concluded: “It’s no wonder that communities across the country, from Texas to California, from Colorado to New York, are trying to ban fracking. We can’t trust our government to protect us. We certainly can’t trust the oil and gas industry. There is no other alternative.”

Man trying to destroy the planet by any means possible. Ain't it great....
66% land grab is up in the UK to be bought up for fracking
It is away to take off in the UK and Europe like the industrial revolution but on a much larger scale that will be the death of this planet with all the NUCLEAR power stations yeap screams AGENDA21 or WW3 been plotted out under cloak and dagger...
frack sand is not sand it is wee metal ball's they mix acids and bicarbonates pumped down the holes with other chems which causes C02 and other gasses to build up under pressure and then what...
Dumbest idea on the planet since NUCLEAR bollox

What Ima noticed is there is a need for a thread here on DiscloseTV apon fracking and the benefits for a need for such? and against the dangers!! of fracking ie the pro's and cons need to be known for all this rocks kins future sake
Please folks this is an EMERGENCY for all life on earth Ima can only state that we must get this info known by anyone we know as it is as much a HELL as fkn chemtrails or is it?...
Post videos and documents here that will help folks understand what is going on

Screenshot proof of the FRACKING INJECTION WELL OPERATION at the Colorado landslide location here:
Proof the area is not only used for fracking, but also for CO2 storage...literally like the carbonation in a can of soda... stored in HIGH PRESSURE SANDS underground...
May 28 2014: They turned OFF the gas wells around Collbran Colorado
For those who don't understand, or those who are trying to deny the fracking connection to this huge landslide... let me explain a bit more.
First, no one can deny there is indeed a fracking operation at the landslide location. This is a fact.
In order to explain why this 4 mile landslide occurred at the fracking operation, you must first understand how the plate is moving currently, and how the weak spots are showing excessive movement.
Current examples of the weak spot / craton edge movement...
The earthquake swarms in Idaho near Red Butte (western portion of the yellowstone magma chamber) , and swarms at Yellowstone park itself, all swarms happening over the past 2 months....
Also, the huge landslide in Washington State (preceded by an earthquake)... the other landslide in Jackson Hole Wyoming at a dormant volcanic Butte... the earthquake swarms at the fracking operations in Oklahoma + Texas + South Colorado, the odd earthquakes in Utah, Nevada and California at the dormant volcanic sites, the larger earthquakes off the coast of California and Oregon at the fresh lavic fields.... the announcement that magma chambers in the Pacific Northwest at Mount Saint Helens and Yellowstone are "recharging"......
Finally, the confirmation that Yellowstone has raised FOUR inches, and moved 1inch Southeast since NEW YEARS . Yellowstone located along the edge of the craton, proves the edge is being moved SOUTHEAST....... add in the earthquakes along the Southern + Eastern edges of the craton , movement in Virginia, Quebec Canada, Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Missouri, and Tennessee.
Put it all together.... the craton edge is being displaced. The weak spots, such as dormant volcanic chains, new lavic fields, and FRACKING operations are showing heavy movement . This is due to the entire edge of the North American craton being displaced (as evidenced by the earthquake activity occurring directly upon the edge of it).
Fracking operations contain hundreds (in some cases thousands) of drill sites. Each drilled out shaft is nothing more than a man made "tube" in the ground. Similar to what mother nature would produce in a volcanic chain. Multiple fractures out of hollow tubes in the ground. Earthquakes occur naturally at the weak points.... like a perforation in a box makes it easy to bend, the perforations in the crust provide a point for pressure release.
Officals are quick to jump to "flooding" in these landslide events. Normally, I would not disagree, however the location of this huge collapse in Colorado , screams out to me as being tectonic related.
Flooding was the "reason" used in Washington State, also in Jackson Hole Wyoming. A week or so after Jackson Hole actually split in half, the main stream media acknowledged it was a BUTTE which split, not due to flooding. The Washington state landslide was hushed up very quickly after the announcement that a SEISMIC EVENT (1.0M to 2.0M) occurred about an hour before the landslide.
This Colorado landslide appears to be more rock and sand than any "water". Don't see flooding waters, no running streams, not even much "mud" in any of the shots.
My best informed guess on this, is that craton pressure caused a fracture at the fracking operation. Possibly an underground aquifer, mixed with frack sand pumped in under high pressure for several years is what caused this massive "flow".
Not seeing the WATER that could have caused this... anyone have ANY PROOF of water? All I'm seeing is rock and sand mixed with trees knocked over at HIGH SPEED .. like a lahar flow, not a mud slide.
Speaking of Lahar flows, Dotsero volcano is just 50 miles Northeast , Colorado's only well known volcano which is located of I-70..... also due North are the Hot Springs, and just North of the Hot Springs is Jackson Hole which had its own collapse.
We can expect more movement (earthquake wise) along the edge of the craton , which means we can expect future large collapses like this in the future.
(collapse isn't the right term, at this point, I'd call this an "eruption" of debris coming from a mix of an aquifer with a fracking operation under high pressure all being released at once due to a larger plate movement issue)

Another amazing jam packed of info video (Fracking) >>>
This next video has a small amount of info that will help folks here in the UK understand why fracking has been upfooted the last few months and plowed out in your main stream dribble...>>>
A PDF is of so called new safety standards and rules been screamed for to be brought in...>>>

Complex stuff indeed folks but at what costs
Well from what Ima personally know here in the UK about my limited knowledge apon the Oil and Gas industry
Excavation of oil and gas by fracking on land is cheaper than excavation in the north sea in the short run but in the long run the pollution to our echo systems will be irreversible which no money will fix...
The UK's main gas terminals >>>

Why on earth do we need fracking could it be all apart of AGENDA21 or the Georgia GuideStones bollox?!!?
Drums out the mainstream bollox eh get ready for a flood of disinfo from now on from the clowns...>>>

Ain't that the truth
A wee bit more truth is here in the UK there is ancient volcanic plates and other layering all sit at total different angles/directions than over in the states which is at a much crazier reason...ffs they should stay clear of fracking and to not even think about banning fracking out right... would be the most demonic clown thing goobermental halfwits have done yet...
